SITIRIIAY APRIL 17th. 1881.
N. O. City Item.
Act 49of 187 7 reltealed the proviilons
of the act of IEP which required judicial
notices of all kinds to Le published in
the olftiliai journal. whether of the State
at the capital, or those deginated accor
ding to law in tie several parishes. The
law regulating such judicial sales, and
etlelt illy those designated in the a' ore
note of inquiry is to be found in see
liotnrs 15, 16 and 17 of the above cited
act, on pages 6641-7 of the laws passed at
the regular session 1877. There are two
judicial sy tems recognize. in this 8tate
the one being the parish of Orleans
and the other for the parishes outside of
Orleans which though differing in some
particulars. are yet similar in others,
and the matter of selecting a newspaper
in which to publish judicial sales in ese.
The same rule prevails throughout all
the parishes, the provisions for the coun
try being as follows :
Sec. 16. That..........where advertise
ments are required to be made in rela
tion to judicial proceedings, or in the
sale of property under judicial I rocese
or in any other legal proceedings of
whatwever kind, they shall be published
in an English newspaper printe d in the
parish, where the proceedings are earried
See. 17. That where there are two or
more newspapers published in the parish
the defendant or party invested by law
with the directian of the proceedings
shall have the right of selecting the
newspaper in which the advertiement is
tobe made, it applied for within three
dlays after notice of such proceedings, or
the seizure made under the process;
should the defendant neglect to select,
the plaintiff shall have the right to do
so; and should neither party invested
by law with the direction or the pro
ceedings, the sheriff, constable, clerk, or
other officer charged by law with the
carrying out of the proceedings shall
The sheriff of the parish and the news
papers throughout the State have it in

In theli pari-h, through the Iru's eaer
tion, litigants gen. rally understanud the
law, and frequently set upon it, espe
cially when the parties directly interee
tet are invented with the proceedings.
Attorneys and agents however, are apt to
sh..w indifference and leave the selection
of the paper to the Court oficers. As
they do not have to pay for the adverti
sltg, the amount of the bill does not in
terest such as are indifferent to their
A Woman's Vindication.
The trial of Emma Norment for the
murder of Henry Arnold, by whom she
had been seduced under promise of mar
riage, was concluded in Memphison Fri
day last. Says the Avalanche.
The jutrwere out but a short while
until they reported that they had agreed
upon a verdlet. Returning into court
their verdict w.as handed to the elerk,
who read: "We the jury dad the defen
dant not guilty as charged in the indlet
ment." Nosooner was the verdict ren
dared than the crowd burst into the wil
decst yells, many throwing their hate to
the ceiling. Two deputy sheritfs at
tenapted to keep silence but to no par
pose. Finally silence being restored ex
eept the sobs of the defendant and her
father, Squire Winters stated the defena
dant and her father desired to shake
hands with the urors and the two ladies
Mra. Saxon and Mrs. Merriwether, who
had given her their presence in this try
inog ordeal through which ashe had jst
passed. The coart said eartainly they
might do sa. They aeecordingly eame
around in front of the Judge's bench and
shook hands with the Jurors and then
Mrs. Saxos and Merriwether esme down
from the Judge's stand sad congratula
ted the defendant and had with her a
few moments whispered conversation.
Then the young woman and her father
shook hands with Judge Douglass while
the tears ran from his eyes. Court was

Gen. Logan has got himself into bat

been paid to the merit of the question
but somehow it has drifted into a per

fortunes of the "Plumed Knight." L

that he has not insinuated that B)lane

bat his republican opponents have been
ungenerous enough to mention the faeet
thatthe record does not agree with the
newspaper reports; that it is no uncom
mon thing for speeches to be rehashed or
remodeled before they go into the record
but that senators do not enjoy the same
facilities for tinkering the press re
ports. Gen. Logan is a brave and hard
fighter, but the non-eombatant Blaine
senators evidently carry tge many gone

Says the Macon (Ga) Telegraph : Many
Macon pacple will remember that iun
11M5 the City Hall and the old Market
House were used as a hospital for the
wounded and sick Confederate sodiers.
The ladies of the town constituted them
selvee nurses, and perhaps in no other
hospital in the Confederacy did the pa
tients fare so well. One day a lady
went to thehuspital to visither soldier."
She was accompanied by a very hand
some married lady, a refugee from Nt w
Orleans. When they reached the cot
upon which the soldier lay writhing
with pain caused by the recent amputa
tion of his left arm. they ministered to
his wants and then sat by and cheered
him with gentle words of comfort. As
they were leaving the soldier requested
the New Orleans lady to vive him asmall
confederate lag whleh she wore upon
her breast. She gavehim the fag, first
writingher name on the white bar. The
soldier recovered, the war ended, and he
returned to his home in Alabama. As
something not to be forgotten, it should
be mentioned that at the time be was in
the hospitsl he was unamarried, and co
tinned so after the war. A fewdays ago
the soldier had oceaslen to visit New
Orleans. He remembered the lady that
gave him the lag sad made inquiries
about her. He diseovered that her has
basd died soen aer the war, and that
bshe, a widow, was still living in New
Orleans. He called e her. Theb he
